After the second practice of fall, Florida State Seminoles football quarterbacks James Blackman and Jordan Travis took the time to sit down with the media, answering questions on the new offensive system as well as what they’ve seen so far from some of the newbies.

Blackman took time to recognize Carter Boatwright’s contributions so far, though he said he couldn’t single out one just person who’s impressed him so far. Travis spoke on working through camp alongside Blackman, how he’s looking forward to proving he’s more than just a runner and how his brother, former Florida State baseball player Devon Travis, set an example for him.

Take a look through some brief quotes and watch the full interviews below:

On the new running backs:

Blackman: “That running back room is so blessed.”

Travis: “They’re really fast and really talented.”

On learning a new system:

Blackman: “Coach Norvell can make anything easy.”

Travis: “I’ve learned a lot of things this year that I had never learned about football.”

On throwing mechanics:

Blackman: “Just trying to keep that back elbow tight”

On Tamorrion Terry bulking up:

Blackman: “That’s the same Scary T. He don’t change. You can tell how motivated he is going into the season.”

On the freshman:

Blackman: “I just love to see those guys balling and progress. They help me grow and focus a lot more too. I love to be around those guys.”

On learning from former Florida State baseball player Devon Travis:

Travis: “He taught me a lot. Seeing him go to work every single day... it kind’ve just motivated me to go out and work.”
